The Benefits of Adding Flax Seed to Your Smoothie
For just $1 per serving you can now add flax seed to your favorite smoothie at Extreme Tan and Smoothies! There are many benefits to adding flax seed to your smoothie, these benefits are due to three main ingredients:
- Omega-3 essential fatty acids – These are “good” fats that have been shown to have heart-healthy effects. Each tablespoon of ground flax seed contains about 1.8 grams of plant omega-3s.
- Lignans – Lignans have both plant estrogen and antioxidant qualities. Flax seed contains 75-800 times more lignans than other plant foods.
- Fiber – Flax seed contains both the soluble and insoluble types of fiber which are beneficial in regulating the digestive system as well as decreasing “bad” cholesterol.
